What the papers say:
“The question everyone’s always asking of this show – why, as a celebrity, would you get involved? – has a blindingly obvious answer, despite my own worries about the sport.
"THEY GET PAID TO GO ON A SKIING HOLIDAY.”
” Of course it’s a bit dangerous, but it’s also a trip where you get the best instructors and equipment more or less on tap, stay in a plush hotel for two months and hang out eating and drinking when you’re not taking part in one of the most exhilarating sports around.” – Radio Times
“The Jump is proving to be the perfect antidote for those who thinks Sunday nights in with Call The Midwife is too twee.” Metro
“And because the majority of them are mildly decent at skiing rather than total noobs, it makes for surprisingly tense television. OK, the actual competition element of the show probably only lasts about 15 minutes in total across an hour-and-a-half of television, but when it's happening, my god are you watching.” Digital Spy
